About Orthodontics

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth. Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons with regards to improving the general appearance of patients’ teeth.

Why get braces?

Your smile is the most striking part of your face. Look in the mirror. Do you like your smile now? Can your smile be improved? You can improve your appearance, bite and dental health from the use of braces. Orthodontic treatment can give you the smile you’ve always wanted that can last for the rest of your life.
